Società Italiana per la Salute Mentale Perinatale

Who We Are

The Marcé Italian Society for Perinatal Mental Health is a non-profit scientific-cultural association, which espouses the principles of The International Marcé Society of Perinatal Mental Health, an association dedicated to raising awareness and supporting research and assistance for mothers with mental health problems, fathers and their children, in the pre- and post-natal. This local commitment materializes through awareness-raising and scientific dissemination initiatives aimed at health and social-health workers, university professors and researchers, but also by organizing training events as well as meetings dedicated to the population. 

The primary aim is to improve, also in Italy, the current methods of prevention, diagnosis, assistance and treatment for pregnant women, mothers and their families with perinatal psychological and psychiatric problems.

The Italian section of the Marcé Society International was founded on 12 December 2015 in Milan by Dr. Alessandra Bramante and Dr. Pietro Grussu, supported and inspired by the scientific collaboration with Prof. Ian Brockington and Prof. Jeannette Milgrom. 

The Marcé Italian Society for Perinatal Mental Health, after the First National Congress held in 2016 in Milan, will continue to organize its national congresses every two years. Annually, however, training days and itinerant training courses are planned on topics relating to perinatal mental health.
